Simply amazing show...
Super high energy from start to finish, the band (& crowd obviously) really seems to be enjoying themselves. Peter Grant contribution on pedal steel is very nice, not overpowering as some pedal steel players can be.
If nothing else listen to Warhead Boogie (track 15); simply has to be one of the best versions ever!

Great show, great sound!
My only regret in listening to this almost two years after the fact is that the recently released live double-CD "Elko" didn't have Fruitful Acre and Birds of America on it. Both songs would really have amped up "Elko." (Both Elko CDs were about an hour long, so there was plenty of time for a couple more songs...) These 2004 spring run shows were originally recorded for "Elko" but for some reason were deemed unsuitable and the spring '05 shows were used instead. Hey, that's cool by me, as there is a treasure trove of spring '04 soundboards available for download! This is one of the better shows, as is the one from The Independent the following night. Both are just great from beginning to end.

Great Sound, Great show
Have been a RRE fan for couple of months now. This is the best sounding show I've d/l'd yet. Love the setlist. Great how they combine Bluegrass with a touch of Rock and Roll and jazz to make them by far the best "jamgrass" band I've heard. Musicianship is topnotch.
Todd's voice is unique. Flavors of the Dead, David Bromberg, Bela etc. mixed in to complement their own talents in songwriting and playing. The pedal steel is a nice complement but is not overpowering. Highly recommended Download.

Tore the roof off
This was my 6th or 7th time seeing these guys, close to home, who knew it would be so earth shattering? This strange cozy pirate like hick bar is a great place for this. Pete Grant's slide work adds to the southern fried sound of the eve, honky tonk with lots of pretty fiddlin' and sweeeeet long jams. Ive never heard Birds of Americac but this song alone is worth the d-load. Great crowd, top notch sound recording. My fave so far....
